Might make you nervous if you're sticking to a budget

We enjoyed a simple, tasty meal here. Similar to other reviewers, food and wine just appeared in front of us from the moment we sat down! Not necessarily a bad thing, you might think, but I would have preferred to have understood the cost first. It was only our second night in Italy, and we were... read more

We were not disappointed in this place in any way! The restaurant was far enough away from the hustle and bustle for us to feel we were not going to get a terrible tourist menu. Truth is, we didn't get a menu at all. Instead, the waitress, after pouring a glass of wine the second we sat down - went... More

OK, so if you're visiting Bologna, you're almost certainly here for the food and this place is a winner. Everything we had was delicious. Yes, as other reviews mention, there is no menu provided or prices and things do arrive on your table without asking , but as we were forewarned we found that quite funny. Looking at the menu...

We came there for lunch and following the advice from other reviews did not ask for the menus (and it's better not to, just go with the flow and trust the owner or the waiter) and never regretted it. you're welcomed with a glass of wine (and they will keep bringing you more) and some amuse-bouche to start with. we...

One word: Emanuelle. One of a kind. And a proper old school restaurateur. He's pride and joy is his restaurant. The food is cooked with one simple ingredient: love. We were visiting friends who live in Bologna and they said they were taking us to somewhere different. A place we would enjoy and remember for many years. When we got... More

Incredible food, we genuinely discussed if it was our best meal ever. Charismatic owner, attentive service. We felt incredibly welcome and utterly enjoyed our evening. All for such a reasonable price, especially considering there were so many extras which were perfectly suited to ththe meal.

We came across this restaurant and were impressed with how vibrant the atmosphere was in the evening. It seemed popular with the locals so we went there for lunch the next day. The charismatic owner chatted to us finding out where we were from etc. and soon the young waiter arrived with a bottle of white wine and proceeded to... More

Local gem popular now due to fabulous reviews and colorful owner visits to your table. Good wine list, outdoor seating, typical Bolognese menu with complimentary glass of wine at seating, so nice

We enjoy good food but this was outstanding. We were a group of ten celebrating my partners birthday. There is no menu just their recommendations and it truly works. We had one vegetarian in the group and I can't eat cheese. They catered for both. As someone previously said- "go with the flow". Each course just melted in the mouth.... More
